This book offers a radical new way of approaching the Old Testament. Sigmund Wagner-Tsukamoto argues that rational, institutional and constitutional economic lessons can be derived from the Old Testament, with applications to social conflict and resolution. The book suggests that this religious text also anticipated many modern economic advances.

MEDIA REVIEWS

' Is God an Economist? gains a very special profile in the international debate on economics, theology and ethics...Wagner-Tsukamoto's economic interpretation of the Old Testament is here a special treat since it clearly shows that the old dualism of economics and theology/philosophy, on which most ethics approaches are built, is historically and systematically not justified. This reveals some very significant progress in interdisciplinary debate.' - Professor Dr Karl Homann, Head of the Chair, Philosophy and Economics, University of Munich, Germany
